CHRISTOPHER WOOL

One Monotype in Red on Suzuki, 1989
Monotype in red, on Suzuki paper, the full sheet, S. 37 1/4 x 24 1/2 in. (94.6 x 62.2 cm)

Monotypes combine the spontaneity of painting with the sensuousness of printed inks and paper, creating a unique surface that is unlike any other in art. Many people are oblivious to the subtle attraction: they focus on the image and ignore the way that inks pressed and absorbed into paper can pull the viewer in, past the image.
Elizabeth Broun, Director of the National Museum of American Art, Washington, D.C., 1997
